Carousel Industries to Resell Cisco Solutions as Managed Service Offerings

By Laura Stotler

MSP Carousel Industries is greatly expanding its reach and offerings, thanks to a newly announced partnership with Cisco. The companies have signed an agreement that enables Carousel, which specializes in communications and network solutions, to sell Cisco offerings to its more than 6,000 customers throughout the U.S.

The move helps the MSP broaden its portfolio of services while providing enhanced customer support to clients using Cisco offerings. Carousel will resell the entire portfolio of Cisco networking, security, data center and collaboration solutions through the new agreement and will have a special focus on the northeastern U.S. market initially. The MSP plans to steadily expand its geographic reach while also focusing on gaining new certifications and areas of specialization.

"Our new cooperation with Cisco is in direct response to customer demand and the increased market opportunity we have seen, which is particularly apparent in managed services," said James Marsh, Chief Revenue Officer of Carousel. "Since our inception, Carousel's strategy has been to partner with best-of-breed technology manufacturers and solve the unique needs of our customers. This partnership is the natural next step in our ongoing effort to expertly map technology solutions to our clients' business challenges."

The move follows a strategic partnership with Aceso Interactive last month to offer value-added services to the healthcare market. Aceso specializes in patient engagement and digital media solutions geared to the unique needs and compliance mandates of the healthcare sector.

In December, carousel completed the requirements for supporting Skype for Business services in Office 365. The MSP also added to the offering to its internal Office 365 solution. The company’s more than 1,100 employees use Skype for Business through a single platform, benefiting from productivity increases and lower costs.
